Get to Know Roman

A Southern California native, Roman Seano was raised in the San Gabriel Valley. But his attachment to Long Beach is life long, spending much time growing up with his grandparents at their family home on Gaviota Avenue. As an adult, he moved to New York for two years, working in entertainment media, before returning to Southern California to launch his real estate career in 2003. That brought him closer to Long Beach, soon leading him and his family to make "the City by the Sea," into simply "home."

Roman has a diverse professional background that crosses outside of real estate, and into human services, public education, design, and journalism. A writer and vision creator at heart, he combines his understanding of people, passion for homes, ethical integrity, and professional presence into being not just a powerful advocate for clients - but also a uniquely intelligent and exceptionally talented Realtor.
